Not enough free space in /var/cache/apt/archives/.
Hi, I'm trying to install android-tools-adb on my Nexus 5, but when I try to do so, I get "E: You don't have enough free space in /var/cache/apt/archives/."
I've tried everything, from deleting .debs in /var/cache/apt/archives to apt autoremove, etc.
I'm on 16.04/devel if that helps.

I can't install android-tools-adb. Please read the post.
@hammerhead Can I ask, just in case I'm missing or no understanding something why you want adb on your nexus5 and not on your pc/laptop
@Lakotaubp this is to install Android apps with Anbox on my nexus 5.
@hammerhead Ok so it is similar to that other post then ( https://forums.ubports.com/topic/4118/android-tools-takes-up-too-much-space ). Apt is not advised to be used on UT by the way, so I gather. Lets see if someone has an answer for you. I have never tried anbox though it is a bit hit and miss depending what you try. Think of it more as a proof of concept than much else at present.
Maybe this will help https://forums.ubports.com/topic/2876/anbox-development?_=1587304810996

Did you try this from the official documentation page?
You could also remove unneeded packages, especially unneeded Hunspell/Myspell dictionaries, ubuntu-keyboard-* and language-pack-touch-*-packages and dependencies with
sudo apt-get purge <package name>
Just be careful about what you remove...

@Lakotaubp This was helpful for me on that ubports post "android tools takes up too much space." After doing some digging around I found this which addresses exactly my problem. My apt seems to be working now.
